From QCWA Headquarters

QCWA Bulletin 2016-004 - Congratulations To Harold Kramer, WJ1B, On His Retirement

The QCWA Board of Directors wish to congratulate QCWA member Harold Kramer, WJ1B, on his retirement from ARRL on March 1, 2016.

On February 26, the ARRL Headquarters staff bid farewell and a happy retirement to Chief Operating Officer Harold Kramer, WJ1B, as he wrapped up 11 years at ARRL Headquarters.

As for his plans, Kramer, whose principal focus has been on emergency communication, said he's hoping to finally put up the tower and beam he's been talking about for the past decade and may even return to the Connecticut Field Organization, where he was once an EC. A book and some QST articles are definite possibilities.

Kramer has been a member of QCWA since 2005, and is also a member of QCWA Chapter 149. Chapter 149 secretary is QCWA member, Steve Ewald, WV1X, who is a staff member at ARRL headquarters.
